I'm not sure how you can call something a "multimedia" dock if it has no audio capability. Is anyone aware of a current or future docking option with speakers?
they call it "multimedia" because of the application that pops up when docked.

We just answered you question from above! That is THE reason they can call it a "multimedia" dock!
No I know of no other dock that will allow music to be transmitted once docked though other speakers other than on the Droid!
No reason to get pissy, think your questions through before you post if you are sesitive about the response!
I am an engineering student in San Diego. I have always been on the cutting edge of having phones. This Droid is way beyond that. I made a commitment of at least 2 years to this phone. I want the most of my phones interactivity. Let's take Car manufacturer's, Verizon, Pioneer, Bose, Mark Levinson, Alpine, and make the Droid eliminate the recharging cable. Its safe secure and always charged and its one more way for you to enjoy handsfree use of your Droid. I can explain more if anyone reads this and finds it interesting. I think it will knock a homerun out of the park! Should be one Droid Car stereo per household or car.

Was the OP asking about a car multimedia dock? My impression was a desktop dock was the topic.
Problem is that the dock would have to use BT or have an ungainly aux cable (unless there's a way to get audio via USB on the Droid). With the latter a dock would be a bit pointless IMO since you could use an aux cable with any stereo or other device with aux in.
MIKRADLE is working on a new multimedia dock that will utilize integral speakers for stereo music. Of course - an audio cable will have to connect the phone to the dock as well as the USB charging port. Both cables will be supplied with the unit. I'm hoping to have this in production and available by late spring or early summer. News and timetables will be posted on our Supporting Vendor site here MIKRADLE - It Simply Does... The Dock Where All Covers Are Accepted
Meanwhile - even I am resorted to using my separate powered speakers (Bose at home and Altec Lansing here at my office). cuskit
